CHRIS SCHWEIZER – ASCENSION

‘Ascension’ shows just how much a power an Chris Schweizer production can hold. Did you know, Armin is playing ‘Ascension’ as a mash-up with his blaster ‘This Is What It Feels Like’?

Hungry for it now? Let’s find it here !!

 

 

 

 

Armed with a destructive bassline, colossal kick drums and ferocious acid lines, ‘Ascension’ shows just how much a power an Chris Schweizer production can hold. Injected with a soaring melody only to circle back to its speaker-busting kick-bass combo, this cut is a safety hazard every clubber would through caution in the wind for.

 

LUKE BOND SIGNS EXCLUSIVELY WITH ARMADA MUSIC AND UNLEASHES NEW SINGLE ‘CLOCKWORK’

 

 

After releasing a slew of acclaimed Trance tunes on a variety of Armada-related labels, U.K. DJ and producer Luke Bond has finally joined Armada Music and Armada Publishing on an exclusive basis. To celebrate this new chapter, the first foray of the IDMA nominee and Garuda regular as an exclusive Armada artist comes in the form a brand-new single called ‘Clockwork’, the successor of his internationally acclaimed single ‘U’.

 

Listen to Luke Bond – Clockwork

So tempestuous it’s able to crack titanium constructions, this devastatingly powerful speaker buster sees Luke Bond combine his knack for creating timeless melodies with a sonic onslaught none can withstand. Speeding up and slowing down like a dysfunctional watch, ‘Clockwork’ catches fans in the moment and helps them make the most of every single second spent on the dance floor.

 

Luke Bond about his new track ‘Clockwork’: “I wanted to create a track that runs along the lines of my previous single, ‘U’, by transitioning from a big epic melody into a huge, banging and unexpected drop! I’m having so much fun creating these kind of songs right now, as I am getting tons of new ideas with every project I work on. This is a track for the festivals!”

 

Luke Bond, whose single ‘On Fire’ (feat. Roxanne Emery) was nominated for ‘Best Trance Track’ at the 30th annual International Dance Music Awards in 2014, has been on quite the roll since he returned from a sabbatical year spent honing his craft. Considering the tidal wave of stand-out singles, gigs on international stages at Electric Zoo, Godskitchen, Hollywood Palladium, Groove Cruise and Marquee Las Vegas, remixes for the likes of Cosmic Gate and Gareth Emery, and the huge mainstage debut of his track ‘U’ by Armin van Buuren at the mainstage of Ultra Music Festival 2018, the U.K. wonderworker counts as one of Trance’s most exciting acts of the moment. ‘Clockwork’ shows fans from all over the world exactly why he’s regarded as such.

 

 

 

 

 

PAVEL KHVALEEV & RINNGS – VIDEOS

These days, ‘expect more’ is how Pavel Khvaleev believes audiences should approach electronic music. And he’s spent the last dozen years raising those expectations. Composer, filmmaker, producer and a polymath-like range of other skills have resulted in the uniting of some of electronic music’s most striking sounds & images.

Since Moonbeam’s 2016 disbanding, Pavel has thrown himself even deeper into the extraordinary audio/visual and highly conceptual universe he and his brother began. On the surface, a spectacle for eye and ear, underneath it’s a swirling melange of deeper meaning, channelled through the avant-garde, meditative, metaphysical & psychological.

As ever supported by his artistic troupe (Avis Vox, Blackfeel Wite, Jacob A. and many others), in the spring Pavel released his sophomore solo album. Based on the premise that every random person passing us is living a life as vivid and complex as our own, ‘Sonder’s opening track was the once-heard/impossible-to-forget ‘Videos’.

 

For it, he collaborated with Karl Zine and Nai Jannson of UK twosome RINNGS. Their innovative techniques, using multi-layered male/female vocal tracks was something that Pawel folded into ‘Videos’, bringing his own polyphonic sounds and analogue synths in as support. Adding subtle bass waves and harmonic trance sequences, collectively it conspires the track’s extraordinary dream-like air of cruising tranquillity.

Karl and Nai performance is a classic two-hander, each voice beautifully playing off the other. Line by lyrical line, the song moves between the overt, implied and the veiled. Part-meditation on the sometimes-fleeting nature of love, lyrically its ‘Videos’ are metaphors for memories – blurred, subjective and half-remembered as they often are.

All in all it’s taken six months for the Russian to fully realise the track as a single release and if that sounds like the longer time, one look at its official video will convince you otherwise. A production in every sense of the word, it’s an extraordinary accompanying work, shedding considerable additional light on ‘Videos’ implication. Completed by a cooler, more stripped down & vocally focused remix by Matvey Emerson, the track is released today. It can be steamed/purchased here: https://blackhole.choons.at/videos and you can watch ‘Video’s official one right here:

OUT NOW: ESTIVA – RAGE RACE + EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW @ HI IBIZA

 

The Dutch electronic dance music DJ has performed at events across the world, Estiva has brought his infectious sound and energy to some of the most pivotal events in the scene. His new track ‘Rage Race’ shows a totally different side of his album ‘Spectacle’.

Estiva: ‘As much as I love the pretty and emotional melodies, sometimes I just feel like raving and raging on the dance floor. Rage Race is a bass driven track I wrote having a dark and steamy club environment in mind. I named it Rage Race because I want to see which one of you clubbers can go out of its mind best!’

Be ready to go on another crazy ride with Estiva, listen to ‘Rage Race’ here.

 

 

 

Definitely one of the darker tracks from his ‘Spectacle’ album, ‘Rage Race’ shows another side to the acclaimed signature sound of Dutch top producer Estiva. Merging a vicious sounding bassline with thumping beats and buzzing synth rises, this tune sets the mood as soon as it kicks in late at night.

And talking about dark and steamy clubs, we met Estiva during the summer at the world famous club Hi Ibiza, and sat down with him for a chat, check this out!
